Hey guys, new here, so obviously apologize for being a noob.
Anyway, looking for some help for a shoot I want to do. I'm pretty experienced, use FCP. Not exactly sure of how to describe what I'm needing to do, but it seems like it's just a lighting technique, with what maybe is a Lens Flare effect added. Just a black background with a light behind the subject that makes the effect (and obviously front light on the subject). A better way to see what I mean is by watching a video like this, starting at :08.
So, I think I pretty much know how it'd done, but just need to get some better insight since it's something I haven't done before. I don't have access to a studio or anything really. So my main questions on getting this to work...how far back does that light need to be? And behind the light can you just use a black backdrop or does it need to be in a big studio with open, non-lit space behind it? Any help here on the best way to get something like this done would be greatly appreciated!
And obviously, if this is on the wrong forum or whatever I apologize.
